Jake Tapper reminds reporters to be ‘equal-opportunity skeptics’ at awards ceremony
As he was honored for his contributions to journalism and maintaining a free press at the Excellence in Journalism conference, CNN chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper urged a room of reporters to work hard to “earn back the trust of the American people.”
SPJ Ethics Chair Andrew Seaman says if news organizations say they don't have time to go deeper on news stories, they're doing journalism wrong. In a Facebook Live interview Wednesday night at the Excellence in Journalism conference in Anaheim, Seaman said journalists should describe controversial events as accurately as possible without labeling the participants.
